    Intense artillery attacks on the Syrian city of Aleppo continued Sunday as Bashar al-Assad’s forces attempt to push out rebels. “It was the most violent shelling of Salaheddin since the outbreak of fighting in Aleppo,” a rights group quoted rebel commander Col. Abdel Jabbar al-Oqaidi as saying. An Al Jazeera reporter in the city confirmed the shelling and said that Syrian fighter-bombers had also been seen making strikes against sections of the city held by opposition forces. The city is home to 2.5 million people.
